Chinese New year
Hi all, I am thinking about doing a lesson on Chinese new year. Does anyone have any ideas on it?

Hi Natalie,
What age/level are your students?
Try this website for some ideas:
I�d do a bit of reading comprehension perhaps, games, arts&crafts (e.g make lucky money envelopes, Chinese firecrackers or Chinese couplets, etc.). Or you could prepare a worksheet to help your Ss to research some aspects of Chinese New Year and then design a poster or a ppt presentation or even cook some Chinese food. I�m very much into multi-cultural stuff and I�ve done something similar for my Xmas Around the World project - it worked brilliantly and, most importantly, my students really enjoyed themselves!
Hope this helps.
Sorry, I�m just too tired to be any more imaginative at the moment. I�m off to bed!
